Soilwork Kick Off North American Tour

July 20th, 2010

Soilwork - The Panic BroadcastThe Godfathers of Swedish modern metal, SOILWORK, recently kick off their North American headlining tour with San Francisco Bay Area thrash legends DEATH ANGEL, Quebec’s tech-death masters AUGURY, Roadrunner Records recording artists MUTINY WITHIN, and pirate themed thrashers SWASHBUCKLE. Frontman Bjorn “Speed” Strid commented on the first show of the tour, and what it was like to play in front of a crowd again after an extended absence from the stage:

“So we kicked off our North American tour last night in West Springfield, VA. All I can say is that we had an absolute blast performing the new songs for the first time. It was our first show in over a year and I felt so pumped getting up on that stage again. The work for our latest album took a lot of energy and patience but made the band regain all the inspiration and strength, so it was with great excitement we entered that stage last night.

The crowd was super excited and already knew the lyrics for some of the songs even though the album was released only 3 days ago. I had a silly smile on my face the whole show, and even though the heat was about to kill me on stage, I could probably have made it through a couple of more songs since I felt so energetic. The set list is massive and so is the touring schedule; 27 shows in 30 days and 18 songs every night, covering our whole career. Pretty damn insane! So proud of what we have accomplished with this new album and they way we pull it off live. A huge kick! Can’t wait to do all these shows. See you soon.”

The Panic Broadcast, was released on July 2 in EUROPE and July 13 in North America via Nuclear Blast!
